Late night TV host Jimmy Fallon and singer Justin Timberlake brought "History of Rap 4" just as the fans wanted on Fallon's show this past week. Timberlake had been a week-long guest on the show, and after some quick deliberations the duo decided to take to the stage backed by The Roots to unleash some of hip hop's greatest hits.
According to a Yahoo! TV report from March 16, the "History of Rap" first debuted back in 2010 with Timberlake and Fallon performing snippets from some of the best songs from rap over the years. They had two more installments in the next year, and finally, what the people wanted, they got, with a fourth edition this past week.
Among the artists the duo imitated were The Fat Boys, Run DMC, Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill, 50 Cent, LL Cool J and Salt N' Pepa. Classic songs included Notorious B.I.G.'s "Hypnotize," Kurtis Blow's "Basketball," and Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice." Fallon and Timberlake were seen sweating profusely as they delivered classic lines including "All I wanna do is zoom-a-zoom zoom zoom…Just shake your rump!" At times, Timberlake couldn't help chuckling at the routine as well, but overall the pair pulled of another successful performance.
